Ouchies Review & Giveaway



Won't be long now and the kids will be out riding bikes, climbing trees, playing baseball in the yard, etc. and what does that bring? Lots and lots of scraped up knees, elbows and other body parts. Well, that's never fun, but you can make the bandages they put on them fun!


Ouchies is a company that makes some of the cutest bandages I've ever seen. Here's the story of how they came to be...

When my daughter turned five, her supply of bandages began to dwindle from all the boo-boo's that kids get, so I decided to search the aisles of drugstores for some kind of alternative – something cool, something different, something stylish. To my complete surprise, I came home empty handed; only able to offer her one of my horribly, boring beige bandages.

As I stood there in front of her medicine cabinet, I thought to myself, “Why are there no cool bandages?” I felt that change was in order, but it wasn’t until my wife (who is the true inspiration and “umph” behind these products) gave me a nudge and said, “You can do it.” From that point on, I started Ouchies – offering kids an array of adhesive bandages that allow them to show their style and personality. Since that time I have had two more kids, furthering my dedication to giving kids the chance to express themselves through bandages.

So, join me, my wife, my two daughters and son and let the world know that just because you are 5 or 8 or even 11, you can still have style after you have fallen and scraped your knee. Down with beige bandages, baby!



I love it! I was given the opportunity to choose 2 tins of bandages to review and chose the 4Boyz and Mr. Men & Little Miss 4Boyz styles. They also have designs that are for girls and unisex. I seriously love Mr. Men and Little Miss (I have magnets of them on my fridge and the books from when I was a kid), so I HAD to get those ones and then the 4Boyz ones were just cool and I knew they would be more Gavin's speed (in fact, he found a reason to use one of the flames ones pretty quick after we got them). Of course I had to keep them from wanting to use one for every little thing right at first, but they chilled out and now they are waiting in the bathroom closet for the next scratch, cut or whatever it is that comes along.



I'm all about making the not-so-fun things better in any way I can and I think that Ouchies are a great way to do that. The bandages stay stuck nicely without ripping off their skin when you take them off and they look cool. Yup, that's pretty much all I could want from a bandage, so I'm sold!

They are so awesome over at Ouchies that they want to offer one of my readers their choice of 2 tins of Ouchies bandages! Cool, huh?! Check out below for how to gain entries to win!
